We are moving towards a stop to home isolation for the positives. “I think we are very close to this goal. On the other hand, the goal is to coexist with the virus and if we talk about coexistence we can only remove the isolation for the positives”. So the undersecretary for health Andrea Costa.
“So I am confident that in the next few weeks – he said – this choice will also be reached, which would be a further step towards normality. I believe that the days are numbered for this type of measure as well”.
Bassetti: “Fundamental step for the return to normality”
The hypothesis of eliminating the obligation of home isolation of the positives in Covid “I think it is a fundamental step for returning to complete normality and coexistence with the virus which is very different to that of 2020 and 2021, when we put positive people in isolation because they were not vaccinated and posed a danger to others – he explains Matteo Bassetti, director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic of the San Martino Polyclinic in Genoa – Today the situation has changed. If this step is made, I hope as soon as possible, it will be the decisive one for true coexistence with Sars-CoV-2 “.
“It is right to remove the quarantine for the positives – underlines the infectious disease specialist – leaving the free movement of people who should have learned that, if there are symptoms of a respiratory infection, they must protect themselves: either by staying at home or wearing a mask”.
Galli: “We are waiting to make races forward in eliminating limitations”
For Massimo Galliformer director of the infectious diseases department of the Sacco hospital in Milan, “from the numbers of the pandemic we are seeing in these days, we cannot exclude that the virus is leading to a new wave: let’s hope a wave, not a wave. , before removing further containment measures I would keep a low profile. Because the moment we eliminate another control tool, we can have some nasty surprises and not in the fall, but already in the height of summer “.
“Right now – he observes Gauls – we have an epidemiological situation a little too dynamic to be able to rush forward in eliminating limitations. From the signs we have, the indication is to continue on the path of prudence and maintain an attitude of caution. It seems that the pandemic still does not want to be closed by decree “, adds the infectious disease specialist, underlining that” the point of view of the undersecretary is understandable It costs with respect to the restart thrusts. But if you ask me, I can only answer that, as things stand, caution would still be appropriate “.
